Smoked Ham with Brown Sugar Glaze
- 7 lbs bone in ham you can go larger or smaller, just adjust the cook time accordingly
- 1/3 cup BBQ rub
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 2 1/4 cups apple cider divided use
- fresh herbs and fruit for garnish
- cooking spray
Preheat a smoker to 250 degrees F. Load the smoker with cherry wood chips.
Coat a disposable aluminum pan with cooking spray. Place the ham cut side down in the pan.
Sprinkle the spice rub all over the exterior of the ham.
Place the pan in the smoker and cook for one hour.
Continue to cook the ham for another 2-3 hours, basting every 30-45 minutes with the 2 cups of apple cider.
The ham is done when a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the ham reads 140 degrees F.
While the ham is smoking, make the glaze.
Place the butter, brown sugar, maple syrup and remaining 1/4 cup of apple cider in a pan over medium heat.
Bring the pan to a simmer. Cook for 6-8 minutes or until glaze has just thickened.
Brush the glaze all over the ham. Transfer the ham to a platter. Garnish the ham with herbs and fruit if desired, then serve.
